The Social Work - Public Health program from the University of Nebraska Omaha is a collaborative effort between the University of Nebraska Medical Center, College of Public Health and the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Grace Abbott School of Social Work.


Vision Statement

The Social Work - Public Health program at the University of Nebraska Omaha offers interdisciplinary preparation in the fields of social work and public health leading to the master of social work and the master of public health degrees, with fewer required credit hours than it would take to obtain these degrees independently. 

This dual degree program prepares students to provide the range of advanced social work services and assume leadership in the public health sector to promote and protect physical and mental health, with a focus on population-based services, prevention, collaboration, and strategies and policies grounded in basic science.

Students beginning the MSW/MPH program at the MSW Foundation level must complete 81 credit hours total. Students beginning the MSW/MPH program at the Advanced Standing level, must complete 57 credit hours total.
